answer is E. Approximately 83% of Bangladeshis are Muslim. Upon
independence in 1947, British-ruled India was divided along religious
lines. Areas containing a Muslim-majority became Pakistan
divided into East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) and West Pakistan (now
Pakistan). The Partition, as it was called, resulted in much
bloodshed and large-scale transfers of population as Muslims moved to
Pakistan and what is now Bangladesh, and Hindus moved to India.
